"It is my sincere hope that you can visit this amazing exhibition. This realistic art has traveled to us from sea to shining sea and beyond, as Anne Perrigo is from the Pacific Northwest and Nan Smith from Florida while Esther Shimazu is from Hawaii and Ilona Romule from Europe. A majority of the sculptors are well-established, highly respected and avidly collected but have rarely been exhibited in Kansas. We hope you will also enjoy the work of our emerging talent whose art is based in realism, yet is conceptual and quite expressive, as well.

Jay Nelson and I had a fantastic experience collaborating and hope you love the show as much as we do and want to take something special home with you.

I hope to see you at the opening."

Linda Ganstrom
